Snowstorm snarls evening commute; Gov. Inslee declares State of Emergency

For the second time in a week, snow was falling across the Puget Sound region, only this time it's a bit stronger of a storm, and it's hitting the Friday evening commute hard.

Snow began falling in the Seattle-Tacoma-Everett corridor just after 12:30 p.m. with snowfall rates set to increase during the afternoon to 1-2 inches per hour, making travel treacherous throughout the entire Puget Sound region and in some cases, doubling or tripling typical travel times for commuters.

Gov. Jay Inslee declared a State of Emergency across the state to deal with the impacts from the winter storm. "Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," Inslee wrote in the proclamation. "I encourage everyone to stay off the roads if possible and plan ahead if you must travel."
